Foodies, listen up:
The Peabody hotel is launching a “historic dinner” series. First up is a dinner themed to tie in with the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.
On April 15 and 16, the dinner will be served in the Peabody’s fine dining restaurant, Chez Philippe. It will replicate the final first class meal aboard the ship.
From the hotel:
“The Titanic 100th Anniversary Dinner will be a course-by-course recreation of the 9-course meal served in the First Class Dining Saloon on the final night aboard the luxury liner, including with Oeufs de caille en aspic et caviar (Quail Eggs in Aspic with Caviar), Potage Saint-Germian (Spring Pea Soup), Homard Thermidor (Lobster Thermidor with Duchess Potatoes), and wine pairings with each course.
Historian Jimmy Ogle will share Memphis connections to passengers aboard the Titanic as music from the ship plays in the background. Guests will receive a boarding pass upon entry and a copy of the book “Last Dinner on the Titanic: Menus and Recipes from the Great Liner” upon exit. There will also be door prizes from the permanent Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.”
Other future dinner themes will include the Orient Express 130th Anniversary Dinner and the Charles Lindberg 85th Anniversary Dinner.
